with mitt romney in the days to come. >> we hear that perhaps mr. romney may do some storm-related events. is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i have no idea nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. i have 2.4 million people out of power. i have devastation on the shore, floods in the northern part of my state. if you think i give a damn about presidential politics, then you don't know me. >> this storm is a wakeup call to those conservatives who want to leave disaster relief up to the states. turn it over to them. to those who want to privatize everything. the state of new jersey is overwhelmed. they don't have enough resources. the state's resources aren't enough to help those without power, to help those flooded out of their home. you need a total effort across the country in a crisis like this. that's why there is a federal government. federal and local governments working together is the successful formula for the state of new jersey. it's going to take time. but to turn it over to the states and say you're
with the scrubbing power of mr. clean magic eraser. >>> welcome back to "the ed show." mitt romney's storm relief event in dayton, ohio, was more than it seemed. turns out the romney campaign, they bought $5,000 worth of supplies the night before, to make sure that, you know, this whole thing just kind of came off okay and looked good. well, the idea was to collect goods for the red cross. very noble. even though the red cross would always prefer cash donations for logistical reasons. the campaign was worried that there might not be enough donations since the event was changed at the last minute. so the night before the event, according to buzzfeed, campaign aides went to a local walmart and spent $5,000 on granola bars, canned foods, diapers, and put on display, while they waited for donations to come in. according to one staffer, the campaign confirmed to buzz feed, it did donate supplies to the relief effort, but would not specify just how much it spent. buzz feed also reported the that empty-handed supporters were told to grab something going in. this should really come as no surprise. mitt r
to be the face of the romney campaign when it comes to these issues. >> and of course, the candidate himself has yet to make any kind of comment that he thinks that maybe mr. sununu may have been over the line. he continues to support him. does not command any kind of clarification he put out was anything but an apology. what does this say about his leadership? >> it says that he's ill equipped to deal with issues that are uncomfortable. he has no social responsibility when it comes to arguing with his own representatives about how they should appropriately represent him. or suggest that he is implicitly in agreement with the vicious attitudes of mr. sununu. that would be quite dangerous and striking and fundamentally that would be an extension of the believes of a campaign that's not been very sensitive around the issues of race. when you couple that insensitivity with the effect of these remarks, all you can conclude is that this is what the man believes and he allows his attack dog to go out and say things he can't directly say. >> professor, we just had lawrence wilkerson on, former chief of
are demanding the truth. joining me tonight, bob king, president of the united autoworkers. mr. king, good to have you with us tonight. this is -- >> great to be with you, ed. >> you bet. this is about conflict of interest. but what do you think mitt romney allegedly did that was wrong? why have you called for this? >> well, because we're told by our legal department that he violated the government ethics laws and he did not disclose where he's got a conflict of interest, his investments in delphi corporation. it's so hypocritical, as you said, for him to criticize the loan and go in like a vulture capitalist and buy the stock at a low price and extort general motors, costing the taxpayers more money. he and his friends at the vulture capitalist made as you said 3,000% to 4,000% return on their investment in delphi by holding up general motors and costing the government more money. >> all right. let's talk -- >> costing taxpayers more. >> let's talk about this extort and hold up general motors. now, delphi is critical to the automobile manufacturing business. they, of course, manufacture p
